With its expansive decking, the beach house provides plenty of space for outdoor living. But the large balconies required extensive balustrades that wouldn't detract from the views. They also needed to complement the contemporary architecture.

Aluma glass balustrading, supplied by Unex Systems Ltd, was specified. The balustrading, which is designed to conform with the New Zealand Building Code, features anodised aluminium rails with a thin, square-edged profile, and Grade A safety glass.

Aluma glass balustrades, which are available with a range of shallow top rails, will preserve the view, while being significantly less expensive than frameless glass. The system also has clean lines and concealed assembly fasteners with no unsightly welds.

Aluma balustrades are constructed from durable aluminium and finished with a powdercoated or anodised surface, allowing colour co-ordination with aluminium joinery if required.
